Welcome to the Kent Family History Society. Established in 1974 as the largest and oldest Family History Society in Kent, with more than 2,400 members worldwide, we are uniquely able to help members to learn how to research their own family tree. If you join the society today your membership will run until June 2018.

The Society is managed by an Executive Committee which meets 4 times a year, these Committee members are all volunteers, as are those who run the Branches.

The Society publishes an informative quarterly journal which is sent free to members. Members are invited to list their research interests by signing in to the society's members area.

Branch meetings are held in Ashford, Canterbury, Deal, Maidstone, Medway (Frindsbury), Thanet (Birchington). In addition, there is an on-line "Global Branch".

We have published more than 2,000 records on microfiche; a range of CDs with indexes to Parish Registers and census returns; more than a million C.M.B. records for Kent have been put on Find my Past. We are always looking for new transcribers.

These publications are available from our online shop. The Society also has an extensive Library open to members to visit (by appointment) or to borrow from.

The current constitution can be viewed from its own page.

The next Society AGM will be hosted by Deal Branch on Saturday 13th October 2018 at Sandwich. [See details]
